Sidenote: i just caught another ASM video and they are really irritating me. They had a list of top products on Amazon and had Tweezerman tweezers as an example of a product opportunity, then went into this “thing” about how they could have had more keywords in their product description and a better description. Tweezerman is a globally known brand. Ugh. I hate that. Too many examples they give are known branded products and are selling very well partially because they are known brands. I once worked with a publicist who worked for Tweezerman. No Amazon-only seller is going to unseat Tweezerman on Amazon and would probably be sorely disappointed if they tried “Oh man, I thought I was supposed to sell a thousand tweezers a day, what happened)..Nevermind. There are just so many other factors.
Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of private labeling? Or maybe you’re trying to say that you can get better rankings in Amazon with a private label brand which of course would lead to more sales? Is that the advantage?

I’m sort of curious about this. I didn’t think it has been sold yet as it so not sure if people are mixing it up with their last product ? I believe this new product Amazon Selling Machine is the final version/revamped methods to what they did in their product last year that was called Amazon Money Machines(which they call their beta product).

I started researching and learning about FBA Private Labeling largely through Scott, and listened to just about all of his podcasts minus the last 10 or so. His podcasts are tremendous, and helped me learn a lot in the beginning. However, I find that now I’ve come to the point where I’m learning nothing new from his podcasts. I find the most value in his interviews at this point. I kind of stopped listening to the podcasts a couple weeks ago and just focused my energy in sourcing and setting up my biz etc. Which really, this is the way it should be. It’s good to always be learning, but Scott’s podcasts are still geared towards new people just starting out, so there’s a law of diminishing returns and I don’t think it’s as crucial for you or I to keep listening to every single episode (the dude busts out 3 a week, it’s a lot to keep up on!)
If you go with content marketing (written or video) the key is to target keyword phrases that you niche audience is searching each day, create quality content that helps people, then repeat the process.

The more I read about other people’s experience, the more I think that selling other people’s products on FBA is just hustling for dollars. You can still make good money, but I wouldn’t spend my time making a few bucks at the sacrifice of what could be long-term potential. I would use it to pad your income and get some experience (if you’re new), but beside that it’s a little dicey. I still sell about 10-20 items that are other people’s products, but I see what I do and figure that it could easily happen to me. And then I read the people who this happens to (who rely on the income full-time) and think that they are doomed in the long-run.
Anyhow I had all badges except the badge where you have to have the products sent to your amazon seller account. As I said.. It’s nearly impossible to gather all the badges or see any results(sales) within 30 days.
Hey Scott, I’m a new listener and new to the game and really look forward to this new adventure. Knowledge is power ( or just a little cheaper to minimize my risk/lesson learning). Thank you very much for your podcast, website, and community. Every episode is extremely knowledable and action packed with so may goodies, I often have to listen with pad and pen furiously writing. I love your positive enthusiasm, your coaching, help, and gudiance on this journey. Massive action is taken, so once I’ve listened all the way through, played the game, and have some scraps and bruises I’ve leave another review so we have a before and after, newbie / novice review. Keep up the awesome work! and thank you!!!
Jim’s PAC course (Proven Amazon Course – brought to you by Jim Cockrum of MySilentTeam.com) is legit (and I’m one of his sometimes-critics, too. I’m also an affiliate of that course, but that’s not my affiliate link.)
I have purchased this program and quite amazed with the level of training – which is super easy and detailed. They really want people to succeed and tell others about this amazing opportunity because it helps them to make more money with every successful ASM launch. It is that simple. With their last launch they made more than 11 million dollars.
I would assume most people realize this, but when you’re shopping around for a “coach” you should be careful of the sales figures that are reported. I have a product that sells for $9.99, costs me $1.25, and I net (after all fees and product costs) $4.76 per sale. Last year I sold 630 of them over a 9 month period. This is the type of product that is so far under the radar that it probably wouldn’t cross anyone’s mind to sell. Sure, it’s not a HUGE money maker, but I profited around $340/month in profit.

While I don’t think the opportunity for private labeling is drying up, there seems to be a big increase in competition in various categories and the front-runners are likely running away with bigger leads at this point.
The next step is much easier: sellers sign up with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and ship all their product there. At that point, Amazon stores the inventory for those sellers as well as markets, sells and ships it. Thus, Amazon becomes the actual drop-shipper.

Your product arrives at Amazon’s warehouse, and your item is for sale under the official brand sales page on Amazon. This is important – you are an independent seller, but you get to harness the power of the official brand page’s advertising and traffic.

Once you sell thru FBA, you figuring out why it’s important to have your own private listing. What’s your doing private labeling, you realize what you need to do in order to propel your listings ahead.
Whenever I’ve been involved with a training program, there are basically 3 types of people; people that succeed, people that don’t succeed, and people that act like they are succeeding. The 3rd group is probably the most dangerous because they act like they are a success story….these are usually the type of people that become moderators because they know the training material very well, but have never been able to implement it successfully. These are also the people that try to use this “notoriety” to launch their own products or training programs. I can give you a long and very specific example of this but I don’t want to bore you with the details.
Matt Clark is someone that I met through a mastermind group that I’m apart of, who is very successful at selling physical products on Amazon. At the time, I interviewed him primarily to learn about Kindle publishing and how he was making so much money on Amazon.
When all this put together – to launch this business successfully you will need around $4,000 or more. So if you add the price of ASM program and initial capital needed you are looking at at least $8,000. It is a lot. The good thing that it’s legitimate business that will work, but it really requires an initial investment.
